Four-time African Women’s Player of the year, Asisat Oshoala, has signed a contract extension with FC Barcelona Femeni, which will see her play for the club until June 2024.

The Nigerian striker’s contact with the Spanish side was set to end in 3 months’ time.

Speaking on the 2-year extension, Oshoala says, “I think I’m really happy and excited to continue the journey with the best team in the world, obviously. Nothing to see here, just a girl who decided to stay at home.

“The goal of every player is to get to the next level. Every year, you want to smash some goals and after four years, you can say that it’s been a progression,” she added.

“Winning trophies, being better on the pitch, scoring more goals every day, it has been really comfortable for me.”

Oshoala first joined the side in 2019 on a loan deal and then later signed a 3-year contract.

She has been a crucial player for the team, helping her side win league titles and various cup competitions, including the UEFA Women’s Champions League trophy in the 2020-21 campaign.

Oshoala highlights the incredible job the team management has done to help players on and off the field: “When you say a club is the best, it is not basically about the trophies, you look outside of football and see how the team treats their players.

“I think the management has done a great job in helping the players improve on and off the pitch. Four years ago, I was not like this, and my mentality was different from what I have now. After three and a half years, I think I have learnt a lot being here.

“To be honest with you, I am a striker who loves to score goals – that’s one of the things I love to do,” she added.

“I just think the most important thing is for me to score more goals and keep improving as more as I can and get opportunities to make myself happy because this is what makes me happy,” Oshoala concluded.
